When using System.Net.WebClient and the Server responds with an HTTP 500 Status code the WebClient throws an exception and does not return the data sent by the server to the caller.
This issue always occurs at least until .NET v4.0.

As a side note: this behaviour actually violates the SHOULD recommendation of RFC 2616 #10.5.
